a tired and skittish electorate. mitt romney, campaigning in wisconsin, trying to erode mr. obama's support in the midwest. he took the job's numbers as support for the central plank of his campaign, but the u.s. economy has failed to recover. >> he said he was going to focus on creating jobs. instead he focused on obamacare, which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half, and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%, and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. >> mr. romney's campaign is snapping at the heels of the incumbent president. his campaign organizers say they can and will win, but they can win only if they take the vital swing states of florida, virginia and ohio. anything less than the prospects receive for them. >> this race is very, very close. it may confound pollsters and pundits alike. it's not clear how or if hurricane sandy will affect the results, but i think we can venture this far -- president obama appears to be holding on t
here 10 years. i work for a small business. i don't see what mr. obama has done in the last four years to help me. the business i work for is not hiring. they don't know what to do with obamacare. this is a company that was built from nothing and they are paralyzed. my kids -- i pay more for gas. you talk about loudoun in 2008, and it was not about the bush tax cuts. i have lived here for 10 years. it was people's visceral reaction to the war. i have not seen anything from mr. obama in the last four years. my husband lost his job and all of my neighbors tied to the defense industry are so nervous that they are going to be next. i do not know how you can say mr. obama has done anything for loudoun county. host: let's get an answer from the chairman of the democratic party. guest: thank you for the question during the war that people were concerned about in 2008 has been ended. it was president obama who brought the termination of the war in iraq, and withdrawing troops from afghanistan and now prepared for nation-building here at home rather than afghanistan and iraq. that war has been
blues, but don't forget that mr. obama won his first office as state senator by disenfranchising 1000 black voters in his district which is where i live by the way. removed their names. so it is a game played by both parties. unfortunately the victims are always the same color and the same income group, the vulnerable, class war. right now there's no question that the democrats are doing it and the republicans are doing it but republicans do it wholesale. the republicans have the big datamining operations that cost 40, $50 billion each to develop while demott kratzer playing with their floppy disks so it is the balance has shifted for 2012. not shifted so much to the republicans because that is just -- for shifted to the billionaires, the hands and the public, mr. sanger of the the vulture and his buddy, is other billionaire buddy and let me just bring up a couple more. i mentioned seamus, the koch brothers. oh yeah we are going after couple more and by the way there are four brothers. you will get the whole pack in "billionaires & ballot bandits," not just david and charles but you g
. >> brown: in turn, mr. obama accused his opponent of trying to scare voters over their economic futures. he pointed to a romney ad running in ohio that charges jeep is shipping jobs to china. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who've been calling their employers worried, asking, "is it true? are our jobs being shipped to china?" and the reason they've been making these calls is that governor romney's been running an ad that says so. except it's not true. >> brown: chrysler has said it has no plans to move the jobs. the romney campaign insists it's standing by its claim. there promised to be much more battling over economic policy, with the race in a dead heat and going down to the wire. we look now at the jobs picture with two economists with ties to the presidential candidates: john taylor of stanford university and the hoover institution. he advises the romney campaign on economic issues. and austan goolsbee of the university of chicago's booth school of business. he served as president obama's chairman of the council of economic advisers until last year. to the extent mob set
obama has made. now that the obama administration has made the tough decisions, now mr. romney wants to take credit and hoodwink the voters. he had a fair chance to win in 2008 and then he could decide to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney
of ohio and michigan would look like today if mr. obama had not presided over the rescue of injury -- general motors. they depend on 850,000 jobs. they created the assembly and parts jobs in ohio. without it, chrysler and begin would have gone out of business and domestic industry supply chain would have collapsed taking ford with them. instead, u.s. auto makers are achieving huge gains in the fuel efficiency of their cars and trucks. who said that? >> mitt romney. >> stephanie: no. they go on to say the bailouts began under president george bush. mitt romney continued to oppose them. they're paying attention in ohio. they also say in the depths of the great recession no such investment was forthcoming. a high-powered businessman and the son of a detroit auto ceo who plays up his michigan roots might be expected to acknowledge that but no. [ applause ] alfranken will have to write an entire book about the romney campaign, the lies and liars to tell about this epic campaign. by the way here is a little shout out
affected by the hurricane. it says early voting is a key to this which mr. obama has counted on to boltster a second term will likely grind to a halt while power failures could last much of the week and conceivably until election day in some places. let's go to carl from west virginia on our republicans line. caller: good morning. i'm sure they will be blaming this on george bush. next week the liberal media will be comparing the great job obama did compared to what bush did in katrina. and i hope he does a better job than he did protecting our people in benghazi. i was a former combat marine and i'm disgusted about the way he hand that would thing in benghazi. thank you. host: caller jon in north carolina comments on the same lines as you. he writes benghazi is the storm that sealed the election. here is what the romney campaign is doing as they look at this storm. it says one of his senior advisors said despite impended wall to wall coverage on sandy he feels voters in the region have received enough information ahead of the election and reiterated the campaign's focus on the safety and w
mileage out of it, mr. obama. >> cenk: michael that's a really interesting point. how much does politics play into the reactions of an administration during a disaster like this? >> here's what i explain to everybody. think about this. every disaster always involves the following... at least two u.s. senators, at least one congressman and at least the president of the united states. so for people to believe that politics doesn't play a role or at least politics isn't on the minds of politicians is just being naive. >> cenk: so if that's the case, why did the bush administration screw it up so badly. do you also acknowledge -- you were the former fema director at the time, d'oh but do you acknowledge there were mistakes made and if so, you know, why get something so monumentally important politically let alone policywise wrong in that case? >> well, because i think there were political miscalculations during katrina and there were actual -- how would i describe it? there were actual leadership problems during ka
here 10 years. i work for a small business. hasn't see what mr. obama done in the last four years to help me. the business i work for is not hiring. they don't know what to do with obamacare. this is a company that was built from nothing and they are paralyzed. my kids -- i pay more for gas. you talk about loudoun in 2008, and it was not about the bush tax cuts. i have lived here for 10 years. it was people's visceral reaction to the war. i have not seen anything from mr. obama in the last four years. my husband lost his job and all of my neighbors tied to the defense industry are so nervous that they are going to be next. i do not know how you can say mr. obama has done anything for loudoun county. host: let's get an answer from the chairman of the democratic party. guest: thank you for the question during the war that people were concerned about in 2008 has been ended. it was president obama who brought the termination of the war in iraq, and withdrawing troops from afghanistan and now prepared for nation-building here at home rather than afghanistan and iraq. that war has been
heard is the reference to the president's rhetoric on the trail yesterday. mr. obama was talking about g.o.p. policies on the trail and the crowd began to boo. and he said, don't boo, vote, voting is the best revenge. and romney, as you heard there a moment ago picked up on it saying, the president has now reduced his campaign to small things and attacks, whereas what romney argues notwithstanding his own attacks of president obama, is that he's offering hope and change. borrowed rhetoric from the 2008 obama campaign itself perhaps, but none of less, in that completion of his rhetoric about obama and revenge, he says, what he hopes people do is vote for their love of country. all about a positive close, notwithstanding again, the criticisms implicit and explicit throughout the stump speech in what is now 82 hours before the first polls close on the east coast tuesday night. we'll send it back to you in new york. >> brian: carl, i know you've got a sense of people on the ground that mccain wouldn't have a shot in ohio, wouldn't have pennsylvania, and a place like new hampshire, is there a
political and get it on before the election to make president obama look presidential or help out victims? >> steve: they are trying to squeeze things in. bon jovi and bruce springsteen support barack obama and in fact mr. springsteen traveled with the president of the united states. where are the conservative performers? there are not any on the line up. when nbc did the event for katrina, do you remember kan ye west where he said george bush doesn't care about black people? how is nbc -- that is the picture right there. how isng to control it? rickk rickk i am sorry, gretchen last one for hurricane katrina was 10 days after. at leastt. maybe 9/11 and 10 days after and let the city get its feet under itself before they went to this is a rushed job because the election is three days after. >> steve: is it a hurricane benefit or a concert for obama? >> gretchen: headlines this morning. he may be on obama's job council but supporting romney. paul otillini. he critized the president for not doing more to create jobs and a stimulus plan. the president's job's council hasn't met since january.
many does president obama lead in? 24 of the 24. every single one. and look at the rest of mr. romney's campaign schedule. he's taking the one trip to pennsylvania that republicans always take. but other than that, he was in ohio and wisconsin today. he was scheduled to be in new hampshire, iowa and colorado in the final days. and he just spent the last couple days in florida and virginia. that means the map is not exp d expandiexpan expanding. no the if you can't afford to walk away tr dwrr battle ground states. he's still flogging it out where he has to win. all of this we're going to win stuff is a fake out, it's a bluff, it's trash talk. and there's nothing wrong with it. it happens every year. you should know it's a dependable part of the end of presidential campaigns. but every once in awhile at the end of a presidential campaign, this expected faint, this attempt at a fake out that everybody knows is coming, every once in awhile it's revealed as a fake out. every once in awhile you get from the campaign an admission that they actually know they are going to lose. at least they
20 years. host: here is to get on twitter. how do residents in new hampshire regard mr. sununu and his remarks on president obama? guest: governor sununu is a knowledgeable former governor of new hampshire. he was chief of staff for herbert walker bush. he knows national politics and has been doing quite a bit of television on behalf of the republican party. a very smart man, very well respected. certainly, anyone in politics who is on television a lot and is commenting sometimes may or may not say something that they regret. i am not going to judge each one of his remarks, but -- host: has it had an impact on the new hampshire voter? guest: is very well-respected in new hampshire, which is maybe one reason why he has been up front for the republican party. he is among people in new hampshire would tend to listen to. the senator is very popular, and our outgoing governor, the president pass campaign used him in advertising because he is so popular. he has been on the stage with the president. they are using surrogates like that. i think that the president's campaign is very sma

committee and the finance committee. >> moderator: a rebuttal, mr. howell. howell: well, i wish you'd help president obama. this is the very essence of the problem. he's only going to help president romney. ladies and gentlemen, this is what the problem is back there. we've become so isolated. i'm going to work with governor romney if he becomes president or president obama. we have to make sure that we tackle this problem. for 36 years my opponent's been back there, and we haven't had a solution. at ibm if you're in a position and you don't fix something, you're fired, you're terminated, you're done. >> moderator: let's go to our next question. it's from randy parker, ceo of the utah farm bureau. it'll go to mr. howell. mr. parker. >> senator hatch, mr. howell, good to be here. our national debt is clearly a burden on our country and our future financial well being. what do you propose to do to reduce government spending, cut the debt and secure our national security for the future? howell: well, thank you, randy, and i appreciate the farm bureau, and randy was actually one of those that
tended to campaign most heavily in the western part of the state. for example, mr. romney has made several appearances in the western part of the state but has not made any appearances in the eastern part of the state. president obama has made quite a few appearances in the eastern part of the state but not recently. that is also true of michelle obama and vice president joe biden. they tend to campaign more in the eastern part of the state in the research triangle where their political strength has been. host: it has been mentioned the president has not been in north carolina since the convention. are people taking notice of that? guest: oh, yes, except for the convention, the president has not campaigned in north carolina since april. we have not really seen the principles here very much at all. governor romney was here a few weeks back and made an appearance in asheville but that was mainly to have a visit with billy graham which was important. it was an important message to send to religious conservatives that it was ok for them to vote for a mormon. aside from that, governor r
. this is an interesting idea. i don't know exactly how you'd move it forward, but it is interesting to contemplate. >> mr. king, are you planning to sue -- you said you wanted to sue president obama over the change in policy that young people would not be deported. >> he violated the constitution like gov. vilsack, he cannot do that with memorandum, and this was bogging people down. >> where do you stand on that? >> in the process? there are plaintiffs who won't come on until after the election. i will hold the suit up until after the election and we will get the suit filed. >> the answer is -- we wouldn't have this issue if congress had done their job. one branch doesn't work well and another steps in. i think the president took a necessary step. >> we will see a couple of commercials right now, the first from mrs. vilsack's campiagn. >> i am christie vilsack and i approve this message. ♪ >> mr. king, mrs. vilsack has called you an embarassment to iowa. do some of the quotes embarrass you? >> i've said by the time i eliminated the questions and dishonesty, the only thing left was "i'm christie vilsack
. host: here is a breakdown of the numbers. obama for america spent about $9 million on spots. aziz said the congressional races getting some attention as well. democratic caller. caller: mr. hubbard, who chose ashley mosier? so many people around this country are being shot. a lot of young kids, teenagers. why is no one talking about gun violence? not just about guns, but why are we treating people so bad? why are we planning to be on afghanistan for two more years? young people come back from afghanistan and we are the spending all this money, poverty everywhere. the guy who wins in the theater and shot it up, the university near he was kind of crazy and we are a better country than the situation we are in. you have a good day. there are people out there who are depending on a real review of where the country is going. host: curtis hubbard. guest: you mentioned a really sorry tragedy for us, july 20th s, the gunmen in the theater in aurora. he killed 12 people and injured 58 at the midnight showing at the premiere of batman. there was a discussion in the days after that about what can
